“I’M IN THE TECH BUSINESS. NO. I’M IN THE RESULTS BUSINESS.
In the results business for professional personal training in the Melbourne CBD.
All I wanted to do this year was work hard. Work hard on getting results. Results for myself, my clients, the close people around me and for my business.
If that meant sticking my head down, working relentlessly, staying off social media, not going out to social events and picking and choosing wisely to whom and where I would exert my energy then so be it. I was willing to make the sacrifices and do the work that needed to get done.
Creating a standard of personal training in the CBD that couldn’t be matched. Achieving RESULTS that couldn’t be faked.
Faked by your personal trainer telling you that you were killing it when you weren’t.
Faked by only looking the part and not being the part.
Faked by all talk and no action.
You see last year; I got caught up a little bit by shiny object syndrome. I wanted to develop a brand, get all social media famous and it lead to me forgetting about one thing RESULTS. The number ONE thing in all business and all personal training.
This year. I wouldn’t repeat that same mistake.
I worked my ass off.
Learning from the best personal training mentor out there Mark Ottobre. He put on the most complete 12-month mentoring program out there for personal trainers. Covering everything from Nutrition, training, business, mindset and a whole bunch of other stuff that’s relevant to running a successful PT business.
Learning from others at the top of their game Jaz Correll, Gulliver Giles, Andre Benoit, Bob Guiel, Chris Churchward and Reece Adams Thank you guys. I apply what you guys taught me every day.
Surrounding myself with other trainers who raised their own standards so high in which I also raised mine.
I spent everything and continue to spend everything; including time, money and energy on working on myself; breaking myself down to build myself back up and working on my clients.
Helping them to achieve results in health, body composition and performance. Results that some of them are so good at now that they just simply can’t be faked. Results that they can take away with them for life. The results speak for themselves.
This year was a reminder.
A reminder of how much hard work, time and resilience that it took; for me to transform from a 100kg fat, unhappy and unhealthy party guy to the person that I am now.
A reminder of how much time I spent alone investing in courses, reading books, experimenting and figuring shit out to become the person I am today.
A reminder that if you make a decision, surround yourself with the right people; that epic shit can be done.
Check out my new website http://www.gordonphonekeo.com. It’s sick. Mobile, desktop, online or offline. Whichever way you want to spin it or view it. You can lick the screen if you want to. It’s mad and what you see is what you get. Results that you can’t fake.
